Visit Bok Tower Gardens
Possibly the most beautiful carillon in the world, set atop Iron Mountain in Florida.
The 205-foot neo-Gothic and Art Deco Singing Tower, was designed by architect Milton B. Medary, with stone sculpture by Lee Lawrie, the creator of Atlas at Rockefeller Center.
A brass door, which depicts the Book of Genesis, and wrought iron gates were created by metalworker Samuel Yellin, whose works also grace both the Washington National Cathedral, Washington D. C. and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York, NY. The upper third of the tower is covered in tiles created by H. Dulles Allen.
The gardens were designed by noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, one of the designers of New York City’s Central Park and the architect for the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.
